Memorial Day Exhibits

Commemorate Memorial Day by visiting the Military Museum

The Military Museum, a branch of the Tennessee State Museum, will be open especially for this Memorial Day weekend. Although usually closed on Sundays and Mondays, it will be open Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m., and Monday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., in honor of the holiday.

The museum, located in the War Memorial Building at Union and 7th streets, features exhibits on America’s foreign wars, including the Spanish American War, World War I, and World War II. Currently on view in the Changing Gallery at the Military Museum, Remembering the World War I Doughboy: The History of Tennessee’s War Memorial examines the history of one of the capitol city’s landmark buildings. The exhibition highlights the history behind the War Memorial Building, which was built in 1925 as a result of Tennessee’s efforts to preserve the memory of those who fought and died in World War I.  more

Visit the Tennessee State Museum over the Memorial Day weekend

While the museum is always closed on Mondays, it will be open on Saturday, May 27, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 28. Bring your friends and family and come visit us over the Memorial Day weekend.

As part of the commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of America’s entry into World War I on April 6, 1917, the State Museum is presenting a small selection of objects from its military collection, as a complement to the WWI exhibit in the War Memorial building. “The Yanks are Coming!” Tennesseans in World War I, which opens at the State Museum on April 6, reflects Tennessee’s role in the war that came to be known as the “Great War.”  more
